GTFS pioneered a new kind of model of software product. In recent years, Powerful computers and networks have revealed a new opportunity for efficient sharing of all kinds information in the world, in real-time. This raises the question: how can we harness this "big data" for everyone's benefit?
Most research in control and optimization of networked dynamical systems heavily relies on the fidelity of the dynamics models and efficient computational techniques to execute optimized control actions, while many autonomous systems are inherently subject to uncertainties and disturbances.
Maintaining a fleet of buses to transport students to school is a major expense for U.S. school districts. In order to reduce costs by reusing buses between schools, many districts spread start times across the morning.
The transportation and logistics industries are undergoing a round of revolutionary innovation. This innovation is fueled by two key drivers: (1) the growing availability of data, and (2) new operational paradigms in a sharing economy.
